NorthStar negotiations a beacon of hope for the country

VERNON — The state of Vermont's agreement to NorthStar's proposed plan to decommission Vermont Yankee decades ahead of schedule is a green light for Vernon and Windham County's financial future.

The fact that almost all intervenors and involved parties were able to make an agreement after lengthy, inclusive negotiations is a beacon of hope for the rest of our country. Thank you to all the principled, hard-working people involved.

I implore the Vermont Public Utility Commission to recognize the once-in-a-lifetime benefits to my town, Vernon. A safe, swift, environmentally sound decommissioning as early as eight years from now will be the foundation of the town's development in the 21st century.

Bring it on!
